Works to start on Teddington Lock footbridges

1 June 2023

Work will start on Monday 26 June 2023 on repairs to two footbridges over the River Thames at Teddington Lock.  

The suspension footbridge main structure and lock cut iron truss footbridge together create a vital connection between Teddington on the south side of the river, and Ham on the north.

Cllr Alexander Ehmann, Chair of Richmond Council’s Transport and Air Quality Committee said:

“These bridges provide a connection that sees very high usage, so the Council is committed to investing in their upkeep and ensuring they remain resilient for many years to come.  

“We’ve worked hard with contractors to minimise the impact of these much-needed repairs and provide access throughout the vast majority of the works. Through the use of special, lightweight access systems, the bridges can be kept open for most of the works and, subject to any unforeseen issues, there should be very minimal impact to those residents who use the bridges as a vital part of their daily travel to work, school or to local amenities.
